    Bought these apples from Merciers orchard, Blue Ridge Ga. This past week-end, they said name was Sept. 1st variety. Sounds like same apple. Very impressed with taste.

    We sampled these in Aug. last year and weren't impressed, but when we tried them again in early Oct. they were fantastic! Crispy and tangy wonderful!

    I tasted September Wonder grown in Georgia fall 2012. The absolute BEST Fuji type I have ever eaten! Far better than any Fugi's I have sampled from the grocery chains.

    Fuji's weren't quite ready so we decided to get the September Wonder, and it blew us away! Very close in flavor to the Fuji, used them for dehydrating, juicing, applesauce, and apple butter. Very delicious!
